Hmmm, how do I start? I would say just know what to expect. The new Disney Springs is not the mellow, inexpensive Downtown Disney of yesteryear. And that will be ok for most of you. Their refurbishment and advertisements have really driven up the crowds. Expect TONS of traffic going to and coming. If you have never been here and... More

We spent an evening down here. Great variety of stores. Not just your usual mall stores. Teens loves the Coke store and getting to taste all the varieties.

Replaced Downtown Disney. It is not an upscale shopping and dining outdoor mall. Also has a bowling alley and movie theater. Try the Coca Cola experience and sample 16 Coles from around the world. Free parking.

During our Disney filled week we decided to check out Disney Springs and we were not disappointed! So many great shops and restaurants to check out. They even had a water taxi to transport area to area to save you some walking. There were candy stores, jewelry stores, Christmas shops, restaurants, rides, coffee shops, toy stores, clothing, an emporium of... More

the new disney springs is going from a nice family location of stores, music, food, able to walk around to a slightly higher end shopping on one end with the larger crowds. It is still a nice spot to go(parking is 100% better with the garages), crowds getting larger and with the new additions on one end it is starting... More

Maybe we just picked the wrong time, but we decided to go to Disney Springs while visiting Orlando for Universal. It was packed and difficult to walk around. Wait times for dinner ranged from an hour to over 3 hours. I don't like the way this little town is laid out, and it can get quite confusing trying to read... More

Its a large area with fun activities for the kids like the arcade that can have them occupied for hours, however with the number of stores around, once you have kids be prepared for the wondering eyes of the little ones, so unless you get deep pockets for there heart desires, I suggest you put some ground rules in place...

We have visited Disney Springs several times in the past, usually while at Disney. However, we were there just to see La Nouba, Visiting for the first time since the new expansion and wow, what a difference! So much more space and shopping. Lots of restaurants. Feels a lot less crowded now as there is more space to spread out.... More

Our family enjoyed all the different restaurants and shops at Disney Springs. The kids lived the Lava restaurant and the Volcano effects, also the Lego dragon in the water. You will enjoy the ambiance while listening to good music.
